Hartek Solar to establish 2 MW floating solar plant in Chandigarh

Hartek Solar has bagged an order for a 2,000 KW floating solar plant from Chandigarh Renewal Energy and Science & Technology Promotion Society (CREST). The 2 MW floating solar plant is claimed to be the largest floating solar power plant to set up in North India. The plant will be situated at Sector 39 water works that supplies water to the Chandigarh city. This project will generate 2800,000 units of electricity per year and will contribute to saving 80,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Recently in July 2022, CREST floated a tender for the development of a 2 MW of grid-connected floating solar projects with high power evacuation systems in Chandigarh. The project’s anticipated cost is Rs 115 million.

Also in August 2022, The Chandigarh Municipal Corporation (CMC) announced plans to build four solar power plants on its land. These projects will cost more than Rs 110 million to be developed. The projects are being planned in collaboration with CREST and will be located at the city’s three material recovery facilitation centres located at Sector 25, Industrial Area, Phase One, and 3 BRD along Industrial Area, Phase Two.
